How to Build a Capsule Jewellery Collection

I love jewellery and own way too much of it (wait, can you ever have too much?), but on a daily basis you will find me reaching for the same pieces off my dressing table. With the hectic lives that we lead, it makes a lot of sense to have some staple (and I don't mean boring) pieces that make up your daily jewellery wardrobe. These are pieces that reflect your style, and match each other and the clothes that you wear everyday. Read on for my tips on how to select pieces for your daily capsule.


Firstly, and most importantly, your preferences...

Which category of jewellery do you naturally gravitate towards? Earrings? Rings? Necklaces?

This is one of the first questions I ask when I speak to anybody seeking advice on jewellery styling.

I am a straight-up earrings and rings girl - I naturally gravitate toward them and the bigger, the better. I do wear other types of jewellery, but sometimes I don't want to think too hard about whether my bangles are clashing with my rings, or if my necklace length is appropriate for my neckline. However, I have friends who feel naked without a big statement necklace or their sentimental bangle stack.
